Some of you may remember when they lived here. they were passing by and stopped in and were looking at the mobiles for sale pictures in the lobby. They are very interested, saying how much they liked R.V.E.

Irene and John Quail provided the donuts.

We had a little outing the other evening, quite a few of us went over to Lonestar B.B.Q. It's on Bus.83 just off of Shary Rd. Pretty good B.B.Q. , but don't think I would go back. We went over to celebrate Rex Rexroads Birthday.

Tonight a bunch going over to Mercedes for Pizza. The 4th was fun, the office providing Popeye's Chicken and we all brought a dish to share.We had several visiters Angie Browns Daughter and family and Judy Shively was here with her Grandsons.Also we were so happy to see Art Bloom up and about. That evening the City had a huge fireworks display at the park Southeast of us. We could really see all the fireworks from the 400's, they were beautiful.

There's a card up to sign for Sandy Novak, she had both knees done.A card for Petra Lopez, in the hosp. diabetes complications, and one for Gary Hejlik having heart problems. Sam and Helen Curtis on vacation to the East coast so I am doing the cards. Please let us know if someone would need a card.

The concrete was poured yesterday for the new bath house in the 99's. The office building all newly painted, it sure looks nice! I will take a picture this morning and put in here.
Riding around the park while it was somewhat cool this morning... the park looks so nice, everywhere is mowed up so pretty, the 400's and 99's and yards all looking very good. We could use a rain soon though. It's awful hot by 11:00 to 6:00 in the day time, close to or a little above 100.

The Century plant at Thomson/Maurers is really deteriating, it won't be long and it will topple over!

Did I tell you all that Frank, our maintenance man quit? So Ken Barnhart is helping Roberto and also Robertos Son is working with the men, Ken has been working right along with Roberto and Son, and remember it's 100 degrees about every day!!They all had a hand in painting the Office building, I wasn't going to post a picture of it until the shutters were on and Palms all trimmed up but thought you all might like to see it...I really love the colors, oh, and they painted the wooden bench around the palm tree in the pool area and will paint all the benches in the shuffleboard court, it's the same rust colored paint that trims the Office

Friday June 24th

Annalisa and Son, Mike furnished donuts this morning.

We do not have any cards to sign except a card for the Farleys who are really home sick for the park. I an sure it's a difficult adjustment for them. Their Sons Dave and Jeff have been here sorting thru and packing things up getting the mobile ready to sell.Also Daves Son Terry was here helping his Dad and Daves wife Terry flew in. Dave is really going to miss coming down here to visit his folks, he attended quite a few functions that the folks went to and met and enjoyied a lot of people.
They are ready to leave as I write this. I had a walk thru of their mobile and it is absolutely gorgious, They have a realtor who will sell it for Farleys, her name is Lela Mary Weber from Winter Texan Home Donna,TX. All you need is your clothes and groceries.

We had a great time on our trip to Vegas, here's a few pictures on the way there. We stayed at Sam's town out on Boulder Hwy. They have a water show where water sprays up to music and when it gets dark they have colored lights, followed by a lazer show.




the big walk thru park has lots of trees and flowers and animated animals, a brook runs thru it also, and the motel a vast majority of the motel rooms are on the park side, so you can look down on the park.

Fred Mohrman's wife Camilla passed away June 23rd. They were from Wisconsin, Wintered here in our park from around 2002 to 2010,at #153

That's it for now

Hope you are all having a wonderful Summer.
